I take it back, Hastert

Well, turns out no gay majority leader. That sucks, because there could have finally been some real progress in the GOP.

Raw Story is reporting that Dreier, previously thought a shoe-in for the post, is most likely being denied because... well, because he's gay.

It now seems Roy Blunt, of nobody-knows-who-the-hell-I-am fame, will now be taking over Delay's post.

One quick thing I'd like to point out, while I'm here. While the erstwhile Democratic savants rejoice over the indictment of Delay, we still have crooks of a much higher caliber running every aspect of the government, engaging in illegal wars, rampant cronyism, the raping of the treasury, and asorted criminal mischief.

And the best we can do is get Delay on a campaign contribution. Really.

It's like watching a murder and giving the murderer a parking ticket. It's absurd in both it's scope and the distraction it provides to all of us so willing to eat it up. On to the next scandal the minute-long attention span of middle America goes, leavign a trail of Schiavos and Plames in its wake.

In defense of America's attention span, however, I would like to point out that there are simply too many goddamned scandals to keep up with. How the hell are we supposed to remember them all?

Come to think of it, that's probably their plan. Keep the scandals coming so hard and so fast that we can't keep them straight. Oh my god, it's so crazy, it just might be working!
